IF ANYONE HAVE THESE TYPE OF KEYBOARD PROBLEM THEN JUST GOTO START->PROGRAM->ACCESSORIES->ACCESSIBILITY->ON SCREE KEYBOARD AND CLICK ON NUM BUTTON LEFT HAND SIDE OF THAT ON SCREEN KEYBOARD(MEANS TURN OFF THAT NUM LOCK OPTION).
THIS IS A SIMPLE AND BEST WAY TO SOLVE ALL TYPES OF LAPTOP OR PC.

Hello,
This problem is solved by pressing "fn" and "num lk scroll" keys down together, not "Caps lock" instead of "fn". Try both, you will see. I gues S/he was pressing the keys ramdomly and the problem got solved un aware!! the light next to the "num lk scroll" should be off for the keyboard to work normally. If the light is "on" then the "fn" key is active and locks the functions on the keys eg. "U" becomes "4" instead coz there are on the same key. I>5, O>6 and so on. those sre the chracters that are circled on the same key. to enable and disable those characters, do as mensioned above.

Shift+NumLk, a light will turn on. Then hold Alt and on the keyboard, they is smaller numbers under the right letters and numbers. This is the numeric keypad.

On my IMB Thinkpad, I solved this problem by pressing 'shift & num lk/scroll' keys together instead of 'fn & num lk/scroll' which might work on other PCs.. Try it and it will work.

dude, as what mous said, just make sure u turn on the numlock.. (fn + scroll/numlk) after it was turned on, you can now use the numbers intended for the" Fn" function (numeric keypad) without pressing and holding it.. with this, now you can hold alt and press the numeric keypad numbers for the symbols you want..
